  1. Build Familiarity with the Scriptures (Acts 17: 11). The more we read the Bible, the more we know what is in there. This is not a negative sense of familiarity but a positive one. You will know the general flow of the bible, the stories and the lessons to be learned as your read it. You will begin to see certain details in the scriptures that you never knew were there and the scriptures will expose those half-truths or bad doctrines we have imbibed over time.
  2. Understand the Context of the Scriptures (2 Timothy 2: 15). One of the major rules of Bible Interpretation is contextual Interpretation. Who is speaking? Who was the person talking to? What is the situation surrounding that speech? Sometimes we pull scriptures out of their context and make it say what its not saying. The more we read our bibles, the better understanding we have of the context, and the closer we get the to actual lesson God wants us to get from that scripture. We are also building immunity to deception from false teachers (2 Peter 2: 1)
  3. Provide a platform for continous fellowship with God (1 John 1: 1-3). Many believers want to hear the voice of God but they are not willing to spend time ‘listening’ to what He has already said in His Word. Fellowship with God should be around the Word of God. The more we spend time in the Word of God, the clearer the Voice of God becomes to us for God and His Word are One (John 1: 1).
